Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny will remain a Toulon player after talks with club officials healed a rift between both parties.

Wales star Leigh Halfpenny is reportedly set to stay with European champions Toulon after crisis talks with officials from the French outfit.

According to BBC Sport, the Top 14 side were ready to terminate his contract on medical grounds, but discussions between Toulon and Halfpenny's representatives have helped heal any rift between the two parties.

The British & Irish Lions full-back is yet to make his debut for the Heineken Cup winners due to a shoulder injury picked up during the Six Nations last March, and the 25-year-old has since sustained a groin problem.

The Welsh's first international of the autumn series sees them face Australia in Cardiff on November 8.
